Did Dak Use Smelling Salts After Hard Hit?

October 22, 2018 - 7:12 am

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott appeared to use smelling salts as he headed back into the game against the Washington Redskins after being checked in the medical tent for a shoulder-to-helmet hit at the end of a run.

Prescott was trying to get to the first-down marker in the first half when he took a shot to the head from Redskins cornerback Greg Stroman.

Prescott was slow to get up. Dallas punted on fourth down, and while Washington had the ball, he was looked at on the sideline.

The QB didn't miss a play, returning for the Cowboys' next possession and later throwing a 49-yard TD pass to rookie receiver Michael Gallup that made the score 7-all at halftime.
